Senate to Vote Thursday on Exit Gallery Renovation

Students senators will decide whether to support a proposed $48,000 renovation to the SUB’s Exit Gallery during their April 12 meeting. The renovation calls for an overhaul of the room, which provides gallery space for student artwork, including lighting, walls, ceiling and finishes.

“Students are realizing that the Exit Gallery is a vital space on campus,” said Exit Gallery Director Stacey Ray during a presentation to the senate last week. “It deserves a renovation.”

Ray said improvements to the 30 year-old space have been needed for at least a decade. “It’s important to represent everyone on campus,” she said, “even artists.”

She has circulated a petition to support the project, gathering over 300 signatures in the first few days.

The ASMSU Senate meets on Thursday, April 12 at 6:00 p.m. in SUB 235, and is open to the public.
